Renowned journalist/author/activist Harvey Wasserman points out that there are several Nuclear Power Plants that are vulnerable to probable war in Ukraine.
Harver Wasserman raises nuclear Ukraine concerns
With 50 years of experience writing and researching nuclear power, author/expert/activist Harvey Wasserman warns that even a “conventional” war in Ukraine could lead to Apocalyptic radiation releases, killing millions and costing trillions. Wasserman warns that even minor disruptions, sabotage, or explosions could lead to Chernobyl-sized disasters at any one of the 15 reactors now operating in Ukraine. Radiation releases from Chernobyl itself, he says, killed more than a million humans worldwide, irradiated thousands of square miles of land and water, and cost trillions in destroyed property.
Harvey Wasserman began researching and writing on atomic power in 1973. Among very few journalists, he investigated the health impacts of Three Mile Island up close and personal. He co-authored KILLING OUR OWN: The Disaster of America’s Experience with Atomic Radiation, with ensuing media appearances on TODAY, NIGHTLINE, PHIL DONAHUE, DEMOCRACY NOW, THOM HARTMANN, CHARLIE ROSE, and numerous other major outlets.
In 1979 Wasserman helped organize the legendary No Nukes Concerts and rallies in Madison Square Garden and Battery Park City which drew more than a quarter-million viewers, leading to a platinum record album and a major Warner Brothers motion picture.
In 1994 he spoke (for Greenpeace) at Woodstock2. In 1996 he addressed public conferences in Kyiv, Ukraine, and Kaliningrad, Russia, where he focussed on the horrifying health impacts of Chernobyl. His 2007 SOLARTOPIA provided a global vision of a totally green-powered Earth.
Wasserman warns that “even a limited non-nuclear military intrusion could cause catastrophic melt-downs at Ukraine’s 15 old, decayed, extremely vulnerable atomic reactors, resulting in mega-lethal radiation releases that could ultimately kill millions and cost trillions.”
“Chernobyl itself is vulnerable,” says Wasserman, “as its melted core is still not totally cold.
“The incredibly dangerous status of any nuke in any war zone has now come home to roost. Our species could very well not survive a worst-case nuke scenario that would come with the outbreak of a war in Ukraine. These reactors, like all others worldwide, must be shut immediately,” says Wasserman.
